Four Democrat House Reps – Merrimack Can’t Afford to Make that Same Mistake Twice

Taxation NH Dems shake taxpayers

In the 2018 wave election, Merrimack, which has 8 seats in the State House and rarely sends one Democrat to Concord, tried sending four. Talk about an embarrassing disaster. A disaster we share statewide. Democrats cast 97-99% of these same bad votes in your town!

This normally strong Republican town mistakenly sent a cadre of rubber-stamp leftists alongside four Republicans. The net output for our town was zero. The four Republicans, all solid, pro-job creator, low tax, local responsibility types, had their votes erased by four left-wing rubber-stamp central planning BLM mob supporting leftists.

How left?

In 2018 these Democrats didn’t have voting records, today they do.

Nancy Murphy, Kathryn Stack, Wendy Thomas, and Rosemarie Rung, spent the past two years trying to rob you of your wages, lifestyle, choices, and rights.

From unnecessary mandates that would drive NH’s already record-high electricity rates higher to new taxes on wages, retirement funds, and job creators.

They voted to make it harder for an unskilled worker to find a job.

Merrimack’s Left-Wing-Agenda Water Carriers also helped Democrat leadership push pointless bans on everyday products, tried to make it harder for people to quit smoking, and even voted repeatedly to give the power to raise taxes to unelected state bureaucrats.

They voted to abrogate the constitutional right to innocence until proven guilty, tried to give driver’s licenses to illegals, and one of whom co-sponsored a bill to infringe on the free speech rights of constituents with an elitist exemption for legislators or other public officials.

And water? They carried a lot of water for the far left but seeing as three out of four ran on water. A Democrat majority committee set an arbitrary unscientific standard that crams millions in new compliance costs down on the backs of towns and cities (challenged in court). An unconstitutional tax increase that Merrimack residents would have to pay out of their own pockets through higher property taxes or fees.

Gov Sununu and NH Republicans blocked these efforts this time around but the Left’s AgenadWater Carriers will try again if we let them.

In an economy struggling to get back on its feet after a shutdown the democrats thought too short, democrats will want to raise revenues rather than cut costs. Hey, you took a cut, now it’s their turn, but Democrats don’t see it that way. They will raise taxes and fees even higher to make up revenue lost by the shutdowns they demanded and the limitation on the economy they advocate.

Elections matter, and so do votes.

So, ere’s a nice round-up of the left’s water carriers from Merrimack, votes nearly every one of your local democrats cast as well.

The descriptions below reflect what the legislation does, not what it was named. But all the bill numbers are included so you can look them up for yourself and decide. (Here’s a link to the State House Web Page.)

Two more points. First, sharing the votes of Democrats with the public will be framed as an attack (in this case on women) though based on Dem party narratives, no one knows what that is in any given minute, so feel free to ignore their caterwauling.

I hope they are great people away from politics but all we care about is votes.

Second, if you press them on these votes on social media, you should expect to get muted or blocked (not so nice and possibly illegal). In other words, they can’t defend voting for higher taxes, more regulations, less transparency, and infringing on natural rights even though they intend to do it all again if you reelect them. Shut up and move along.

The proper response to replace them on Tuesday. Vote them out of office.

Here is the list Sorted by “types of votes” where possible.
